I made 2 demo's of the module. It is pretty easy to use and being able to modulate the parameters is really very sweet. There is a lot can be done so this is really just a taster. One nice touch is that the module can take severe clipping and will self oscillate once the feedback goes beyond a point. If I get anything more structured at a later stage I'll post that as well. For now if ambient droning hysterical weirdness is your thing you should enjoy these :)

Got my new TipTop Audio Z-DSP with the Dragonfly card and very tasty it is too. So far TipTop have 2 cards the one thats bundled with the module, the Dragonfly, and another called Bat Filter. The Bat Filter contains 8 digital filters of various types ranging from 4 to 8 poles . More cards promised to come... with everything from compression, EQ, battling LFO's and anything else you can think of that can be done with 1000ms of DSP delaytime.

New York based music production school & DJ Institute Dubspot have a nice series of Ableton production tutorials on their site (and YouTube channel) which are well worth checking if you're of a Dubstep/Bass music persuasion. This tutorial is an overview of how to use Ableton's Vocoder (among other effects) to thicken a snare sound. Good advice in there for all engineers and producers too though! Bigups to Dubspot.
